Carl Nielsen: Lightweight

Odense City Museum presents, in collaboration with the Royal Library, a new lightweight exhibition about the composer Carl Nielsen.

The exhibition presents the audience for knowledge about Carl Nielsen's life and work, specifically the symphonies, the popular songs, and the opera 'Masquerade'.

A timeline gives an overview of Nielsen's entire repertoire. We are also addressing the composition process, and how Nielsen's music has been received in an international context.
All presented visually inviting with a lot of photos in large formats.

The exhibition is an edited version of Odense City Museums multimedia exhibition Music is life. The exhibition is in English.
